Paper Whites et White Roses

Paper Whites... White Roses...
and old clock faces.

I'm inspired this White Wednesday

Antique Clock Face Going to New Home... bye bye, beauty!

Yes, I'm sending this beautiful clock face from Europe off to its new home
it is on its way already!

  Makes me happy when I know a piece is going to a
good home where it will be appreciated by a kind soul.

Now for a quick view of my paper whites (at least those in my little work nook)
and some pretty white roses.  By now, you know this little place is never without
fleurs of some kind.  I try to have a few in every room, it just makes things
lighter for me and my hubby's nice enough to stop by the grocery store each
Friday.  A lady that works there usually has a couple dozen put away
for him to bring home here, isn't that nice of her?

Zeke even smells the fleurs every Friday when they are
brought in the maison ~ so funny, but he's got to do it!

My little work corner filled w/fleurs
I know, it's small like the rest of the maison, but I want it beautiful and inspiring
if possible and filled with fresh fleurs.

Paper Whites et White Roses

Just one more photo and that's it for me this post as I'm playing
catch up big, big time.
I'm so far behind and I'm still trying to recover from having the flu.
Please don't do what I did... thought it was gone and pushed a bit too hard.

Have so much making up to do...

A little bit of the sea in white for the paper white arrangement

I hope to be back next White Wednesday (if not before) and show you
our maison Christmas tree... that is, hoping I find one still left out there
ready to come home with me.  

I'd love to show you more of
our Christmas decorations too.

Thank you for all your well wishes,
it really lifted my spirit!

Happiness to you!

Your flowers are just beautiful, Tracie. I was a little late in starting paper whites this winter. How sweet that your husband picks up flowers for you and even sweeter that they save the best for you! And I love the space that you have created for yourself.

We don't have our tree yet, just one thing after the other including a big snowstorm over the weekend. I am going to have to leave it up until February to get my money's worth!

I hope you are feeling 100%!
